January 27, 2011

Feed my starving children driveThe Carrington College – Online Administration Team joined the DeVry Administration team on January 15 in Wood Dale, Illinois for an all day food drive with the “Feed My Starving Children” non-profit organization.  The “Feed My Starving Children” non-profit is dedicated to packing and shipping  meals for children suffering from malnutrition.  The meals are packed and shipped to over 70 impoverished nations around the world.  Here is a link to the organizations website.

This year Carrington College – Online and DeVry Inc. organized two meal drives, for employees at both its Chicago area offices, Wood Dale and Downers Grove.  The Carrington College team helped lead the Wood Dale meal drive.  Employees took time out of their days and worked in shifts to pack meals that would be shipped all over the world to starving children.  Each location broke up into teams to compete against each other, this “friendly” competition helped them reach their goal.  The goal of this drive was to pack 100,000 meals, the Carrington College and DeVry Inc. team ended up easily exceeding the goal and packed a 110,376 meals!  You can go to the photos tab on the Carrington College Facebook page to see the Carrington College – Online team in action at the Feed My Starving Children event.
